Any suggestion of card swap for Jaina until I have crafted it? Thinking about Lich king maybe or do you have any other suggestion?

Sure, The Lich King could work, but you will be losing out on the long-term value generated by Jaina, so make sure to craft her soon.

can i fit in dragoncaller alana for extra value instead of some card in this list?

If the meta is slow enough for you to swap in Dragoncaller Alanna, you should swap an anti-aggro card out. Ice Barrier does nothing but "heal", so that would be the first card to be removed.

I've seen a lot of players using Dragoncaller Alanna and doing well with her.

The value you can generate with it can be great especially if you drop it after your opponent burned their best AoE like Psychic Scream or Shadowreaper Anduin.

The downside is it might be high cost dead card in your hand for a while if you draw it early.

I would be very careful using Frozen's list.  It is teched heavily to beat highlander priest, and generally preforms very poorly vs warlock.  He designed his tournament line up with the intention of banning warlock every game (almost everyone at the world championship designed there line up to either beat priest or warlock then banned out the other one in every game).  Alex is rather bad in every match up, except highlander priest, you can cut her (the deck isn't a burn deck, it is a slow grindy control deck, the only reason it runs alex is so you can live through the 30 damage burst priest puts on, clear the board + second ice block, followed up by alex to stabilize, this is your game plan vs highlander priest and the only real way you can beat them, barring a strong dirty rat yoink), but you will lose a lot of percentage vs priest.  Personally, I would cut 1 dirty rat, both familiars (they are much worse with the number of spiteful decks running around, and in general can fizzle quite often vs warlock, and add in 1 blizzard, alanna, and another golakka.  Warlock is going to be your toughest match up, you really lack the burn to threaten them, geist is your best card in this match up, destroying dark pact means they have a much harder time pressuring you early.  Then all you have to do (I say this like it is easy, it really isn't) is clear every single doom guard they summon, then attrition them out with jaina.  If you want to improve this match up, find some way to add in a couple doomsayers, then you can clear the board, drop a doomsayer, and tempo swing with alanna, or add in a spell breaker or two (the spell breakers are better, but doomsayers are good against aggro).  Against control lock, if you don't have silence, you almost always will lose to turbo rin (normal control lock is much rarer then cube lock though), and really there isn't much you can do against this.

Dragons fury will do at least 4 damage. Not 5 since you have listed polymorph as a spell.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 1 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
